Broadband not available in your area?
ADSL is available here, but I'm something like 20 miles beyond the 3 mile limit. It's almost like a microcosm of the internet when broadband first went nationwide. All the cities have broadband, and those out in the rural areas are stuck with dialup. I've got a friend north of the border in Canada, same situation, he lives out in the middle of nowhere, is a grain farmer, and he has 2 megabit cable modem access.
